Great Looking Fixes for Your Teeth
Having great-looking teeth is important to maintain one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Not a lot of people can pull of having missing teeth, and going about life normally. If this is a problem you are currently struggling with, maybe it’s time to have a visit at our office. Before coming to visit us, you might want to know of some options:
1. Teeth Whitening
This is one of the most common (and inexpensive) fixes to achieve that beautiful smile. Tooth whitening can be accomplished at home with professionally made and monitored products from our office. Another option is our in office whitening system.
2. Composite Bonding
If a chipped tooth (or teeth) is your main concern, you might opt for a tooth-coloured composite resin. Attached to the teeth, this can improve the strength and the appearance of chipped teeth. This usually requires the dentist having to prepare your teeth for the bonding.
3. Dental Implants
Nowadays, dental implants are usually made of titanium. It is used to replace not just the missing tooth, but the actual root portion of a missing tooth which makes them extremely strong. Dental implants are fitted with a crown to have that natural-looking feeling and appearance.
4. Tooth-Coloured Fillings
Tooth fillings used to be obvious in earlier times because of their different colours. Thanks to modern technology and innovation, tooth fillings now have the same colour as that of natural teeth and are barely noticeable!
5. Clear Orthodontic Aligners
Just like the old tooth fillings, metal braces are slowly fading from the picture. All thanks to another new trend: clear orthodontic aligners! Many adults, and some teenagers, are already going for this alternative to straighten crooked teeth.
6. Tooth Contouring
Do you wish to have a different shape for your teeth? That’s not a problem! Cosmetic dentists have the ability to smoothen or reshape teeth with the use of a laser or small drill.
7. Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are designed to substitute for tooth enamel. They are made of hard, thin shells of tooth-coloured material that can mask a variety of dental imperfections.
8. Porcelain Crowns
Heavily damaged teeth are still teeth that can be saved with natural-looking porcelain crowns. These replace more natural tooth structure than veneers.
Dental treatments depend on the different and individual needs of each person. A trip to the dentist will determine the best option for you.
